Special Weather Alert from the City of Oak Hill in Nashville!
As a resident of Oak Hill I received this email today, January 29, 2010 with regards to our current (and beautiful!) snowy conditions…
Special Weather Alert
On Thursday afternoon the City of Oak Hill began a pre-salting program for our roads in preparation for today’s weather. The trucks rolled back out this morning to try and keep the streets clear while the precipitation fell. Unfortunately, the mix of snow and ice have overwhelmed our efforts.
At eight o’clock Friday evening we are halting our efforts as the precipitation is coming down faster than we can clear the roads. To continue at this point would be a waste of city resources, and many other entities have made similar decisions.
Our trucks will start working again around four o’clock Saturday morning. However, it may be longer before we reach the higher elevations.
We encourage you to stay home and not be out on the roads. There are two primary reasons for this. First and foremost, it is for your safety. Additionally, vehicles traveling on the roads before our salt trucks have them properly treated only makes their job tougher. When their job is made tougher, the time it takes to clear the roads for our residents is lengthened.
We hope that you enjoy the peace and beauty that this event has brought to Oak Hill. Please be safe and take this opportunity to spend time with your family, friends, and neighbors.
Enjoy the snow Oak Hill residents! It’s definitely unique for Nashville!
